Cashner up Monday

Postby rightwingjedi » Sat May 29, 2010 10:30 am

Rotoworld reports

Baseball Prospectus' Kevin Goldstein reports that the Cubs may recall RHP Andrew Cashner from Triple-A on Monday.

Cashner had recently moved to the bullpen for Triple-A Iowa, so it's a good bet that the Cubs will keep him there when they do call him up. Randy Wells' horrid start yesterday really taxed the Cubs' bullpen, so this move could be a temporary one, or perhaps the front office has decided that their first-round pick from 2008 has nothing left to prove at Triple-A.

So does anyone think he gets a shot to start soon?

Dempster, Lilly and Silva are pitching too well to push out of the rotation. If Wells has a couple more shaky starts, he could move into the pen, but he's safe for now. Gorzelanny is moving into the bullpen to make room for Zambrano in the rotation. It's kind of a tough luck situation for Gorzelanny because he has pitched pretty well, better than Wells thus far. So, I tend to think Gorzelanny is the first to go back into the rotation if someone falters (either Zambrano or Wells). Cashner could be next after Gorzelanny in the pecking order for the rotation though.

In a deep league, he's worth stashing because 1. Zambrano could get bombed and go back into the pen 2. Wells could get bombed and go into the pen 3. Lilly could get injured 4. Silva could revert to getting bombed.
